Happy Friday friends! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and are planning to relax and enjoy this upcoming weekend. Thought I’d check in with you on all the things. Let me know how you’re doing!
What I’ve Been Reading:
It’s been a few days since I finished a book but February has still been a really good reading month. My most recent reads are
Beverly Hills Wedding had a lot of potential but sadly, it was a Nope!, from me. I think wedding movies can be tricky to pull off in a film that is going to be 2 hours long, especially when the main characters of the film are so heavily involved in the making of the wedding happening! The heroine of the movie is the sister of the bride and steps up to help her sister plan the wedding which in turn results in her making the wedding into something completely opposite of her sister and her groom. If the focus of this film would have solely been sisterhood, the at times over-protectiveness and tendency to do too much on an older sister’s part and letting go of those reigns it would have been perfect But, it’s pitched as a romance and the focus was on a second chance romance so that’s what I went into this movie expecting. In the beginning we are given the fact that Molly and Cory were a couple once upon a time; I think that along with the few scenes we see them interact throughout the movie are supposed to suffice for the lackluster happy ending we see at the end. The chemistry is supposed to be assumed because we know they’ve been together before, but this whole movie is awkward and uncomfortable because main character Molly is making it that way and it detracts from any believability with the romance.
I am currently reading The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas which releases this month on the 23rd and I am loving it!
It’s Valentine’s Day Weekend so this weekend will be jam packed with romcom watching and reading (sounds like a typical weekend for me!) and I’m hoping to just chill. I hope you do too! Let me know what you’re up to, what you’ve been reading and enjoying!
